Carlson Keeping Cooper Honest: “It’s About Ratings… Just Admit It”

Wednesday on MSNBC, Tucker Carlson called out Anderson Cooper for his polygamy passion. “So Cooper traveled to New Orleans to, as he put it, keep them honest. Well, the honesty lasted all of seven minutes last night, at which point Cooper moved on to the next thing.

Watch the time on the screen in this next clip. Cooper makes it until 10:07 minutes into his show before the urge to abandon Katrina before Warren Jeffs, the polygamist, overcomes him completely. He doesn’t resume keeping them honest until 10:52 p.m.”

Carlson adds: “Look, it’s about ratings. Let’s be honest… Just admit it. Don’t pretend that your cable news show is some sort of outlet for your religious crusade. You know? It’s a ratings-getting device. Just admit it.”
